AAC+ Streams won't play!

Philip Merrin 6 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 6 years ago 0

This app only 'seems' suited for phones. I have an android media player with ICS firmware and find that all AAC+ and variants of that codec m4a for example are failing to connect/play, With some streams I get the message "MEDIA FAILURE WHAT:1 EXTRA:-2147483648" but what does it mean?  I only normally manually add url's as I don't want any mp3 streams - as they sound terrible at low bit-rates.

I'd be happy to buy the pro version if that gets around the problem. I've paid for many useless apps, some of which continually freeze or just don't deliver what they promise. Windows media codec streams and the one ogg stream I use work well. I like the extended buffering option as well. So the only disappointment is having to use winamp pro or MediaU apps for my AAC+ streams, any ideas developers?

Just to confirm, you are trying to connect to live stream and not local files correct?


There seems to be an issue with the Android media framework on your device. I would recommend you switch to the FFmpeg stream engine. Simply go to Settings->Stream and pick the stream engine. Do this while playback is stopped.
